The Convert's Song by Sebastian Rotella
  

Lovereading view...

A thriller with an Argentinian and a Lebanese forming a childhood friendship that carries through to their adult life. The problem is that one becomes a security guard, the other a terrorist. The loyalty and trust between the two certainly complicates things in an enjoyable tale, if perhaps a tad convoluted. Strangely it lacks the final shoot out for that bit of tense, human action is replaced by technology! No doubt very real in today’s security world. There are drugs, bombs, kidnapping, international settings and all the right ingredients, plus a slice of chaotic South American life so the rest is all classic thriller stuff. Very exciting. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

The Convert's Song by Sebastian Rotella

After a hazardous stint in U.S. law enforcement, Valentine Pescatore is trying to start over in Buenos Aires. But everything changes when an old friend reappears - just before a terrorist attack. A call placed to Pescatore's phone makes him a suspect, and he knows there is only one possible connection. To clear his name, he must join agents from three countries to track the suspected terrorist who was once his closest confidant. From the jungles of South America to the streets of Paris, from the mansions of the Spanish Riviera to the compounds of Baghdad, THE CONVERT'S SONG leads Pescatore on a high-speed chase to stop the deadly convert before he strikes again.
